“I’m Going To Prison For Arithmetic” Andrew Auernheimer aka Weev

Before entering the New Jersey courthouse to face his sentencing on March 18, 2013, Andrew Auernheimer (Weev) gave a short speech to the press and to his friends. Auernheimer was sentenced to 41 months in prison followed by three years supervised release.

Auernheimer revealed a security flaw in AT&T’s iPad user database, allowing him to scrape the data from 114,000 iPad users. The information was later on given to a journalist. In January 2011, the FBI did an investigation and filed a criminal complaint.

Auernheimer was convicted on conspiracy to access a computer without authorization (18 U.S.C. § 1030(a)(2)(C), part of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986) and fraud in connection with personal information (18 U.S.C. § 1028(a)(7)).

    he’s not going to prison for math
    he’s going to prison for publicly tweaking the nose of Big Homelander’s snitch friend AT&T
    and for not having enough money to “pay” for really good lawyers
    because justice in America is criminal justice

    At least in prison he will be able to rub elbows with people who can tell him how to do and who to do criminal activities with to generate the cash to pay the fine. 1 Cheer for being institutionalized!

    I’ve had drinks w weev several times. Not that this is indicator of anything but his taste in scotch, but seriously… prison? This whole thing is so fucked and absurd that there aren’t words. Except I guess for “fucked” and “absurd.”

    And mind you. I’m not sticking up for a lot of what Weev did. But trolling isn’t something that gets… how many years was it?
